What a great idea Alan! Last Friday afternoon, the Rotary Club of Truth or Consequences joined the Elephant Butte Rotary Club under the leadership of our president Alan Briley to take a guided tour of the Spaceport construction site. The Council of Governments loaned us two buses for the trip. On the way out, Liza Greer and her son Earl were exceptional tour guides pointing out landmarks and ranches along the way. Alan’s friend led the tour pointing out buildings under construction and let us go from one end of the runway to the other, plus get out and really get a feel for it taking pictures to our heart’s content.

I’m still not sure what goes in there, but the shape was interesting.
Blanca and Kandi: the prettiest Rotary construction workers I’ve ever seen!
Give the girls some place and they want to show off their line dancing!
This is the hangar under construction.
My friend Deb Peters was my guest on the tour. She loved the idea of seeing where she might potentially have a job. She was stationed in Alamogordo in the service and really knows the area.
My dear friend Naydene Gardener Daves and I hadn’t seen each other forever and were deep in conversation.
Kandi and I just seemed to be in awe of the whole operation, but the tour leader was right there on our left. I don’t know why we didn’t ask more questions.
It was a great time and great tour. Thanks again, Alan.
